My name is Douglas Thonen. I Graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art. I am a painter and Muralist. I enjoy working out of my comfort zone and learning new techniques and materials. I have worked in a variety of career fields. Currently I am the Art teacher at Nina Harris Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Center. I create art on a regular basis with great effort to do something new or different each time. The most important things in my life are my Wife and children. Jessica Thonen is a Theatre Professor at Eckerd College. I have two beautiful daughters who are destined to be artists. We reside in Historic Kenwood in Saint Petersburg and love being part of the Art community.
